How to join us
The choir welcomes adult male members of any age and singing has been shown to be a healthy, creative and fun activity. Choir members learn about their own voice and develop their musical skills through working with our professionally qualified musical director and with other choir members.
You can learn to sing in a wide range of styles and genres, have the opportunity to participate in performances that contribute to a wide range of community endeavours and bring pleasure and happiness to yourself and others.
With your interest and enthusiasm we are confident that we can help you over those first tentative steps, many members come to the choir with little or no formal training. It is not a requirement that you can read music, our musical director can undertake a simple voice test with you and see that you are placed in the correct section of the choir.
If you would like to check us out before deciding why not come along and listen to one of our rehearsals. Should you like what you hear then we can offer you six weeks training with the choir absolutely free of charge; that is usually long enough for someone to make a decision about joining us. It is rare for people to join us for those six weeks and then drop out, singing is so addictive!
Once you are a full member there is a monthly subscription of £10, this is usually paid by standing order and our treasurer will provide new members with the relevant paperwork and advice.
All we ask is for your commitment to regular attendance at our weekly rehearsals; these are held on Tuesday evenings from 7..00 to 9.00 at St Mary's Preparatory School on Winnowsty Lane in uphill Lincoln, close by the Cathedral. Full details, with map, are available on our Contact page.
It is, we know, not always easy to take that first step but be assured that those who do often discover something good about themselves. As new members in the past have commented :-
'' I didn't realise I could get so much enjoyment from singing '' and '' I didn't know I was good enough to sing in a choir before''
We also have a lively social calender with our summer BBQ, Choir Dinner and end of season gatherings to which all members and their wives or partners are cordially invited.
If you would like further information then either come along to one of our Tuesday evening rehearsals, contact any member of our committee or send us an email. You will find all the necessary information on our Contact page.
